Classmate conflicts among senior middle school students are often heard on campus over recent years. These conflicts make the excitement of campus life grow grey and have bad effects on both their living and learning.
Classmate conflicts often rise from daily tiny things such as space where to store books or notes. When personalities don’t mix, the specifics can tear classmates apart and sometimes even lead to serious conflicts. Besides, the fact that classmates hold different attitudes towards certain issues is another factor causing these conflicts.
Classmate conflicts are harmful and need to be settled. Though many people think that school discipline can soften the conflicts, I believe learning to be tolerant with each other can play a more constructive role because it teaches students flexibility and the art of compromise. Meanwhile, communication contributes to the solution to this problem since many of these conflicts result from misunderstanding.
Study the picture above carefully and write an essay entitled “On the Interpersonal Relationship in the Modern World” In the essay, you should (1) describe the picture (2) interpret its meaning (3) give your opinion about the phenomenon .You should write about 200 words neatly on ANSWER SHEET 2. (20 points)
The picture is talking about a story about neighborhood. Two ladies living in the opposite apartments say “hello” when they happen to meet each other in the corridor. One of them says, “I moved here 5 years ago, but I never met you before. Could I ask your name please?” The other says,” I have been here for 6 years. How should I call you?”
It seems very ridiculous that people living so near don’t know each other for such a long time. However, this kind of story is performed everywhere. It is the exact reflection of interpersonal relationships in the modern world. In the modern world, most people live in apartments. They close their doors and never go out as soon as they get home from work. If they live alone, they will kill their time by watching TV or reading magazines. They don’t have any connections even with their closest neighbors, who seem no different from people they meet everyday in the street. They become more and more indifferent.
This phenomenon is no good to us, nor to our society. People will feel lonely more and more. The world becomes so indifferent. Interpersonal relationships are not harmonious. It’s time that we took some measures to improve it. People living in the same zone can be organized to have some activities together. We should call on people to be friendly to each other. As a popular song says,” If everybody gives a little love to each other, the world will become the sea of love.”
According to a survey， more than two thirds of people in China agree that， the public moral level is lower than before. This figure， although hard to accept， has indicated the fact that the nation’s overall morality is declining. If you pay some attention， you could easily point out some improper behaviors happening around: young men refusing to give seats to the old on buses; shoppers jamming into queue instead of waiting in line; crude riders neglecting red lights， etc. So what the hell is going on?
As analysts have figured out， this trend of degradation mainly originated from faulty education. For decades， Chinese schools simply infuse bookish knowledge to their students， whilst moral cultivation becomes a kind of formalism; on the other hand， children are naturally influenced by their family and other adults in the society， most of whom are too sophisticated to be considered as eligible moral models.
Facing such disappointing condition， you may ask: how can things become better? As far as I am concerned， we must following these three steps. First of all: self-shaping. We should manage ourselves well， and try to shape our own morality as perfect as possible. The second step: family-shaping， which is to behave as the model for your children and improve their moral status through strict discipline. The third: organization-shaping. If you are leading people， such as being a manager or national president， you could reinforce your whole organization’s moral situation with policy and your own action. Even if you’re no leader， you’ll have a positive impact on the society if only you manage yourself well and try to influence others as much as possible.
